Isto é uma notícia

of companies and closets

("The revolution is far from over. Nearly half of the respondents to the Center for Work-Life Policy’s survey are still in the closet. And even the most enlightened companies cannot make up for intolerance in the rest of the world. It is ha...rd to reach the top of a big company without serving a stint abroad. But homosexuality is still illegal in 76 countries—including such vibrant business hubs as Dubai and Singapore—and is punishable by death in Saudi Arabia, Iran and parts of Nigeria.

Still, the gay revolution in the workplace is remarkable. In most places, companies are more liberal than governments. In America, for example, until last year soldiers could be kicked out of the army for being gay, and 29 states still allow discrimination on the basis of sexual preference. In the coming years, the revolution is likely to gather pace. Younger workers are far more relaxed about homosexuality than their parents were. Indeed, many young heterosexuals would feel uncomfortable working for a firm that failed to treat gays decently. Companies vying to recruit them will bear this in mind.")
